Korilla BBQ will Open its Second Brick-and-Mortar at 55 Spring Street

No sooner did Ceci-Cela Patisserie and Eight Turn Crepe depart than the new class of tenants arrive at 55 Spring Street. Well, at least one new business. Today brings word that food truck favorite Korilla BBQ is opening its second brick-and-mortar location here.

(Korilla HQ is on Third Avenue near Astor Place.)

The facade of floor-to-ceiling windows is already decorated with leafing and imagery that announces their forthcoming arrival. However, its official social media presence is fairly mum on the subject.

This caps a fairly busy couple weeks for 55 Spring Street and nascent building owner Renatus Group. The storefront bakeries, Ceci-Cela and Eight Turn Crepe, both vacated the premises; the former consolidated at its new home on Delancey Street. Not only that, they’re also trying to convince the city to alter the Special Little Italy District zoning to their favor.

Renatus, which acquired the property for $15.5 million, hope the zoning shakeup will let “ground floor commercial uses cover their entire lots (including rear yard). If the application is approved, a total of approximately 1,750 SF would be added to their ground floors.”

Renatus met with Community Board 2 to discuss the proposal this week with no resolutions made.
